optics & optical systems
Realizing that solar electricity would be widely adopted if it were cost-competitive with fossil fuel-derived electricity, the entrepreneurs behind SolFocus had developed a promising CPV approach -- in their garage -- and were working to advance their technology.
Companies, both large and small, can now take advantage of PARC’s expertise in leading-edge optics and optical systems development to further their business goals. PARC’s capabilities today include micro and large-area imaging and non-imaging optical system designs, prototyping, process optimization, and transfer to manufacturing.
PARC offers a proven co-extrusion printing technique, CoEx, that can enhance both the energy and power densities of batteries. A cost-effective way to manufacture structured electrodes, this technique can be applied to both cathodes and anodes for most mature battery chemistries.
